The Finance Department prepares monthly and annual financial reports. The monthly reports include a financial statement overview accompanied by the check register. The annual reports include the Popular Annual Financial Report (PAFR) and the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR).
Users of the PAFR and CAFR should understand that financial information is provided for convenience and is not provided in connection with an offer to buy or sell any securities. Material changes may have been made to the information since it was posted, so it must not be considered current as of the day you access it.
Popular Annual Financial Report
Popular Annual Financial Report (PAFR) aims to present useful information about city’s operations, services, programs and financial condition. All of this information is provided in an uncomplicated, understandable format that we hope you will find both inviting and easy to read. Based on the requirements of the Government Finance Officers Association, the PAFR is prepared in conjunction with the CAFR and published in June (six months after the end of Dunwoody’s financial year).
Comprehensive Annual Financial Report
A Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) is a set of financial statements that complies with the accounting requirements promulgated by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB). Presented in three main sections, the Introductory Section includes a financial overview, discussion of the city’s economy and organizational structure. The Financial Section includes the auditor’s report, management’s discussion and analysis, audited basic financial statements and notes to the financial statements. This section also includes combining and individual fund financial statements and supporting schedules. The third and final section is the Statistical Section and includes unaudited economic, financial trend and demographic information for the city on a multi-year basis. Based on the requirements of the Government Finance Officers Association, the CAFR is prepared in conjunction with the PAFR and published in June (six months after the end of Dunwoody’s financial year).
